Epsilon Sigma Alpha - Delta Zeta Chapter

I completed this service as a sister of Epsilon Sigma Alpha. This food pantry is held twice a month in the United Church to provide food to low-income families and singletons in Foggy Bottom and larger DC area. I really enjoy interacting with the clients and working to create connections with people who truly are my neighbors but I may not get to interact with as much as a student at GW.

Spring 2019 Nashman Center Symposium on Community Engaged Scholarship

It was really wonderful to share some of my experiences both through doing service and in Spanish classes at GW with underclassmen. My video also I felt was a nice way to wrap up and summarize very briefly a lot of the work I have done with domestic violence over my four years.

He estado acompañando a los defensores para aprender el proceso de ingresos y redactar una orden de protección temporal para los sobrevivientes de violencia domestica. Hoy tuvimos un cliente hispanohablante que quería hacer un ingreso y aprender más sobre el proceso. Tuve la oportunidad de seguir esta admisión y aprender más sobre el proceso y la terminología para comunicarlo mejor en español.

Esta fue la tercera semana que estuve trabajando con una mujer de México que había estado viviendo en el hogar con sus cinco hijos. Este fue su último día, ya que habíamos podido ayudarla a encontrar un otro hogar de más tiempo y yo ayudé a traducir y facilitar los pasos finales de su mudanza y asegurarme de que sabía que estaba lista.

Traduje para una familia mexicana (una madre y cinco hijos) que llegaron la semana pasada a Shelter. Necesitábamos comunicarnos con su nuevo trabajador social e intentar transferir sus beneficios de Maryland a DC.
Su fecha de salida fue hoy, pero habíamos determinado que podríamos ayudar a la madre a encontrar otras opciones de alojamiento, de las que hablamos.

Traduje para una familia mexicana (una madre y cinco hijos) que llegaron la noche anterior a Shelter. Necesitaban comunicar su situación a la escuela de sus hijos y coordinar con su trabajador social. También necesitaban artículos de tocador y otras necesidades básicas, ya que acababan de llegar al hogar.

DC Central Kitchen

I helped in preparing large batches of fried rice to be distributed throughout the city. First we cooked the eggs and then mixed them into large batches of rice and frozen vegetables that needed to be seasoned and stirred. We also counted out boxes of fruit and bread that would be distributed to different partner organizations in DC.

KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now)

I completed this service as a sister of Epsilon Sigma Alpha. I have done lots of service with KEEN in the past and it is one of my favorite places to do service in the DMV area. I had never done KEEN Zumba before until today and absolutely loved it. Before the session we reflected with the coordinator on the barriers for individuals with autism as they transition into adulthood and the lack of programs and resources often available for them. The instructor was wonderful with the athletes and very engaging with the whole class, and everyone seemed to enjoy it!

KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now)

I completed this service as a sister of Epsilon Sigma Alpha. We had planned on doing KEEN Music, but when we arrived, they were short-staffed on sports so I assisted with both sports sessions. One of my athletes was very active and verbal, while the other was not-each equally wonderful but presenting their own unique challenges.
I am always inspired and humbled by the hard work and enthusiasm of the athletes as well as the care and kindness of the staff at KEEN.
